Facepalm.

A fair critique. The Gophers were so uneventful it just felt like a bye.

The Huskers will win this game unless Taylor gives it away. More talent from top to bottom and the Lincoln crowd gets it done.

And yes I'm a homer.

And now you see.

If you check the threads, you will see that I picked Huskers -4, check, Vandy +9, check, and Mich - 14, check.

So my bye week gaffe aside, it has been a good start to the weekend.

Hope it continues.

If you want to fade MSU on the road, wait 2 weeks to do it in Iowa City. They struggle inside Kinnick.

Nebraska's D is very average, they are missing 2 of their top 4 DTs (including their best one by far, Crick). MSU should be able to "Pound Green, Pound" with big back Bell falling forward for 4-5 yards a carry and Edwin Baker providing a burst of speed off-tackle. Kirk Cousins was lights out last weekend outplaying Heisman hopeful Russell Wilson and he already laid his one egg per season against ND. I don't think MSU will have much trouble scoring in this game (not saying they drop 48 a la Wisconsin but 28+ is well within the realm of possibility).

On to Nebraska's offense. T-Mart is a poor man's Denard. MSU will stack the box and force Martinez to throw (which he can't do). Burkhead going off for 150+ is their only chance of winning this game. With 7+ in the box the entire game, it might be tough sledding for Neb to consistently run and move the chains. MSU's D is not LSU or Alabama, but they are certainly in that next group of great D's.

If the only reason you are betting on Nebraska is b/c you expect an MSU let down, then be prepared to be let down. This MSU squad is very solid. I'll put my $ on the 5th year senior QB who understands if they win tomorrow, they are playing in Indy on 12/3. There is a reason the line dropped 2 points with even $ on both sides, follow the "smart $".

1,110 to win 1,000 MSU +4
500 to win 800 MSU +160

 

All that analysis and what did it get you?

Do you see what happens? Do you see what happens Larry?
